Give Rhythm to your flat lay photography

Flat lay photography analysis

With this flat lay photo, I will show three elements that are proven to work. The idea is that you can replicate these characteristics and get a more successful flat lay for your Instagram game.


Make triangles shapes with the object in your flat lay (you can see the pink arrows in the photo for reference) This will help you flat lay photo composition and bring order and rhythm to your final product.


Mix and match textures in your flat lay. How? Add fresh ingredients, an intricate surface like wood, with a uniform background. These ingredients will create a very appealing contrast.


Flat lays photos are an organized mess. To be able to get that effect, don't be afraid of leaving some blank spaces. Blank spaces give an order to what otherwise would appear to be a cluttered image.
